Dear Colleague

Discontinuation of NHS funding of specialist homeopathic treatment

Following previous communication regarding the withdrawal of funding by NHS West
Kent for specialist homeopathic treatment, please find enclosed the exceptionality
criteria, which have now been approved.

Please be aware that all referrals for specialist homeopathic treatment must now be
made through the Individual Treatment Panel (ITP) and patients will be considered
subject to the enclosed criteria. This applies to all referrals made to specialist
homeopathic treatment, including those made via Choose and Book. No referrals can
be made without prior approval from the ITP.

Should you have any questions or concerns about the contents of this letter, please
contact Andrea Chait at the ITP on andrea.chait@wkpct.nhs.uk or 01732 375214.

Yours sincerely

Julia Ross
